Interested in contributing to the upcoming Turbo 3.0 book? It takes a generous community to produce comprehensive books on such a focused topic. Have a question you would love to see answered by the book? We can't promise it will be in there, but send it our way!
We are always looking for period photographs as well as photos of unusual original details on the 3.0-liter Turbos. If you have interesting material to contribute, lease send details to firstname.lastname@example.org. Some notable photos we are still looking for:
- period photos of Turbos displayed at the dealership
- period photos of Turbos being delivered at dealerships or with the new owner's on delivery day
- Porsche booth at motor shows (1974 London, 1975 Geneva, 1975 AutoRAI Amsterdam, 1975 Turin)
- period 1975–1980 photos of 3.0-liter Turbos racing or rallying
- photos of Turbos being painted at the factory
Additionally, looking for detail photos:
- English language interior decals on Japanese delivered 911/930s (e.g. "HORN", etc)
- rear parcel shelf speaker on 1975–76 models
- original underbody painting and overspray marks
- rocker panel texture close ups (1975 and 1976)
- Italian market white front reflectors
- body production number stamping
If your Turbo has any of the above details and you'd be interested in contributing a photo, please contact email@example.com and I can send example photos to use as a guide for photographing details. Thank you for your help!

Review of the Turbo 3.0 book in Flat6 magazine's January 2019 issue:
Pas moins de 536 pages, plus de 1500 photos et illustrations pour la plupart jamais publiées, voici un ouvrage majeur sur la 911 Turbo 3.0. Pour tout savoir, tout décoder du modèle emblématique du milieu des seventies.
Ryan Snodgrass n’en est pas à son coup d’essai, après avoir écrit et publié en 2015 un ouvrage de 416 pages sur la Carrera 2.7 mondialement reconnu, il a décidé de s’attaquer à la Turbo 3.0 avec succès. Bien sûr le livre est en anglais, mais très facile à lire, et vraiment complet. Toute l’histoire de la Turbo est fidèlement racontée, chaque couleur, chaque option, chaque couleur ou tissu de siège y sont fidèlement répertoriés. Si vous êtes ou avez été propriétaire de cette icône de l’automobile, ou si vous en avez rêvé et que vous en rêvez encore, vous vous devez d’avoir cet ouvrage dans votre bibliothèque, Vous ne pourrez plus dire : « je ne savais pas ».
Rough English translation:
No less than 536 pages, more than 1500 photos and illustrations for the most part ever published, here is a major work on the 911 Turbo 3.0. To know everything, to decode the emblematic model of the middle of the seventies.
Ryan Snodgrass is not at his first attempt, after writing and published in 2015 a book of 416 pages on the world famous Carrera 2.7, he decided to tackle the Turbo 3.0 successfully. Of course the book is in English, but very easy to read, and really complete. The whole history of the Turbo is faithfully told, every color, every option, every color or seat fabric is faithfully listed. If you are or have been the owner of this car icon, or if you have dreamed of it and still dream of it, you owe it to yourself to have it in your library. You will not be able to say, "I did not know".
July saw Ryan Snodgrass' second book come to market, Turbo 3.0 — Porsche's First Turbocharged Supercar. Another superb offering from Snodgrass, and I personally love his panache for design and layout. He is also one of the pioneers of what I call, the "future of automotive publishing" by giving the customer a lot of specific details. Perfect for anyone who either owns one of the cars or is looking to buy one. This limited edition of 2500 copies has 536 pages and comes slipcased. The book was also nominated for "The Royal Automobile Club Book of the Year."
